Description [Suggest Change]

Follow a right leaning crack system through a bulge to fun varnish climbing. A mid way anchor is found a 90ft, which is useful for a one rope descent. Continue upwards to an anchor at 150ft on moderate varish climbing. This is a fun long route with no real crux.

Location [Suggest Change]

On the far right side of the cliff. The first route to the left of "Whatever happens..."

I don't really understand why this climb is bolted for the first 3/4 of the climb; it could take lots of reliable gear. Oh well. Still a fun climb. My buddy and I stayed in the crack which ended with a really cool dihedral, and then followed the original route left to the anchors. Fun, fast, and straight forward. Aug 18, 2014

The route description says 17 bolts- not.

Tho this is a very fun route, we thought 5.7 not 10b.

First pitch: 8 bolts
Second pitch: 4 bolts Apr 9, 2015
